ACS money!

Hey there! I wanted to tell you that my church did a special collection for cancer research after I told my pastor about all you great Etsy people participating in Etsy Project Embrace and donating to the American Cancer Society! We collected $389.00 - I think that is cool. We have a few ladies in the congregation that are great people and cancer survivors - I think I'm the only one undergoing treatment at the present time. When i get it situated, i will be applying that money to the "team gifts"! That will put us over the $3000 mark - we are currently at $2993, pretty amazing that we raised that much money in about 3 months...... !!!! For more info, you can click on the links on the right of my page.

Jenn and I are headed for my dr. appt. tomorrow and we are taking baby Chase (because he is so good - he can go anywhere - as long as he can suck on his fingers!!) We are meeting with Lynn at 1:00 pm for lunch at the cafe in my building. If you want to come - let me know!! We'll be taking pictures. I also have my hat pictures taken and when i get some time - I'll be doing a slide show as well -.......... so STAY TUNED! Love you lots. laura

  4. That's so cool, Laura, about the church collection... that's what church is all about... a group of folks loving and supporting and praying and caring for each other. So glad you have that AND your online community of us Etsians! Hope you had a great time at lunch and that your dr appt went well. Hugs and love, Rebecca

  6. Hi Laura! I saw your team's posting in the Treasury and that led me to you....I grew up in the Nanticoke area many years ago and am about your age. So we grew up at basically the same time...in the same place.... I am so touched by your positive attitude and approach. As a nurse, I can tell you that is the very thing that is driving you to success at beating this. I'm so proud of you! I will follow your blog. All the best to you dear! Kirsten
